English 102: First Year Composition

This ENG 102 iCourse helps students to gain a rhetorical understanding of media literacy. In the first project, they do a rhetorical analysis of a heavily biased news article. The second project asks them to research a topic to gain a broad understanding of it and to work on vetting each source. The third project then asks them to synthesize this information in order to create an op-ed on the topic. WP3 is a chance for them to show their media literacy and understanding of the genre of online writing by creating a fully digital piece of writing in their ASU ePortfolios.
